Month O' Paint Rages On...

I think this is my last installment for the Month O' Paint.

I have been looking for a chandelier for my dining room for awhile. I
didn't want anything fancy.

Just the typical crooked arm with 5-6 lights that I could put little shades on.
Surprisingly, the Lowe's in my town doesn't like that style.

They want me to go with something super fancy and super expensive.
However, they did finally get one in that was just what I was looking for.

It was about $150.
I was willing to buck up and pay that.

That is, until I went to a yard sale one day:

Total country, but it had the bones I was looking for.

Plus I got it for $30!!

I simply taped off all the electrical parts and sprayed it black with a little Oil Rubbed Bronze on top.

After I ripped the red leather trim (yes it was leather strips like shoelaces) off the shades, it is perfect in my dining room!

Seriously. Does it look like a $30 country-fied fixture to you??

Have you noticed that I love the word seriously? I bet if you go back and read all my posts from the past year you could find one in every one.

It just makes me want to break out in "Isn't She Lovely."

Sing with me...

Isn't she lovely. Isn't she wonderful.

Okay, that's all the words I know. Sing amongst yourselves.
